About WGS

We are a small, warm and friendly school that offers an enriching environment for girls to develop into resourceful, confident, independent, creative thinkers, enabling them to reach their potential and shine.

Here, your daughter will be known as an individual. She will benefit from small class sizes and a stimulating and challenging curriculum that encourages intellectual curiosity and a love for learning.

We have a strong sense of community that champions diversity and respect, and there are boundless opportunities for our girls.

Our Junior School would offer your daughter a safe and secure foundation, allow her to question and be bold in her thinking and learning, ready to make the transition to Senior School with confidence.

The Assessment

Entry to Withington’s Junior School is by assessment. The whole aim of the assessment is to test the girls’ ability to think for themselves. It is not necessary, or even helpful, for the girls to be heavily tutored, as this will not help us to discover their true potential.

The Junior School assessment held during the summer term will include tests in English and Mathematics as well as a standardised reading test. There are no sample papers as the English and Mathematics assessments will be similar to work that the girls usually do at school. There is a guide to what your daughter should be capable of at the time of the Entrance Assessment here:

Year 3 entry (7+): 7 Plus – Withington Girls’ School (wgs.org)

Year 4 (8+) & 5 (9+): 8 – 10 Plus – Withington Girls’ School (wgs.org)
